Despite mixed returns over the past 2 years, ARI was the worst team against TEs last year, and their LBs are still awful in coverage. Get Gates in your lineup.

Tight ends seem to fare well against Lovie's Cover-2 scheme.

Olsen is as steady as they come and QB Cam Newton is going to have to target him a ton with the lack of depth at tight end. Hopefully Cam Newton is healthy enough to target him, it is the reason Olsen is outside my Top 10.

*Falling Star* - Gates is now considered 50/50 after hurting himself during Saturday's pratctice. If he does play, Gates may have a chance at a red zone score as he takes on the worst defense against opposing tight ends a season ago.

Olsen had 106 yards and a touchdown last season against the Bucs but questions surround how ready Cam Newton will be after being out of practice so long.

Gates is old but he's not dead. No Daryl Washington leaves the door open for a sneaky week 1.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Olsen is Cam's best weapon so he should at least get targeted quite a bit.
